Night expeditions

The essence of night expeditions

A day out in the jungle is a magnificence experience, and it does not end when the sun goes down.  The adventure continues as you glide into dusk and the sunny skies illuminate with dusky pinks and startling hues of blue. Get aboard a boat and surrender to a cacophony of fascinating sounds as the jungle plans and prepares for dinner. Rustles, crinkles, crackles, patters and stirrings are just what you will hear from the towering trees, leafy plants and lush vegetation. The exciting part is glimpsing what is behind those sounds. Unlike anything you have ever experienced, the rumble of the jungle is phenomenal. Glance up and marvel at stunning twinkling stars creating constellations and clusters that are magnificently clear. You will feel as if you have your own private planetarium experience.

You are brought back to the present with a hiss and a swish as you spot the impressive black caiman, one of the largest and least known of the crocodile cousins, swooping bats, croaking frogs, and a plethora of other nocturnal creatures. Your night safari is a sublime experience where you are totally enveloped in the wild.

Travellers to the region are offered the unrivalled opportunity to encounter a multitude of exquisite wildlife and engage with the Amazon’s indigenous inhabitants. While exceptional treks within the rainforest are undoubtedly a highlight, the attraction of the northern Amazon Basin lies in its unrivalled water safari.
